I have Cubase AI 12 from my recent Audio Interface.
I’ve been offered the Cubase Pro 10.5 Upgrade From Cubase AI, but I suppose AI 10 was out at that point.
So will the license system recognise AI 12 as a valid base for the Upgrade?
I’m assuming that I will get a grace period Upgrade from Pro 10.5 to 12 when I register; if it works with AI 12.
Now that Steinberg are using their own licensing system, will the grace period still work for such an old license?
Yes, @valleyken has probably mistaken the price, don’t expect it to drop by a crazy amount when upgrading from AI.
You already have the upgrade code, but not from the right version. When you activate a new licence, it always gives the current version, but the upgrade you have is probably “from Cubase 10.5”, so you won’t be able to use it on a Cubase 12 license. Anyway, try redeeming it and see if that works. If it doesn’t, you may need to contact the Steinberg Support so that they exchange the code with a valid one.
